How About Helping A Fellow Web Geek Out, Huh?

Why didn’t anyone tell me that my site/theme looks like absolute garbage in IE? I mean, I haven’t done extensive testing, but dang, man!, it’s awful.

  1. Uh, other than some variation in font sizes on the sidebar, I don’t see any difference.

  2. I bet you’re one of those fancy-dance IE 7 users, arentcha?
    I need to amend my statement: my site looks terrible on IE 6.

  3. As a webmaster, you should try to install the top 5 browsers on the market and test your web design in each. I have three machines running different browsers with different versions to test mine out. I am a compliant freak.

  4. Yes, well, that’s all well and good, and I can test on Safari, Opera, Firefox and that’s about it – I rarely have access to a Windows machine, and all the ones I do have access to happen to have been upgraded to IE7.
    I’d best be hitting up Browsershots then, I guess.

  5. Doug and how did you discover it looked like garbage?

  6. I was actually performing maintenance on a machine out on our engineering floor yesterday and was waiting for Windows Update to finish running. Thought I’d check the site, out of pure vanity, of course, and noted that it looked polly wolly crappy.
    Of course, I may have to eat my words, as I’ve been suspiciously unable to recreate the issue on other machines.
    Web design is teh hard/sux0r.

  7. I’m looking at it on IE6 now. Everything looks fine except for this here comment box which is bleeding over onto the sidebar.
